Problem attached in Dipole.Jpg
The Attempt at a Solution
I am fine with Part A of the problem. Im just trying to understand what part B is asking. Are they asking what is the magnitude and direction of the dipole vector associated with charges q1 and q1 at point P? It is not clear to me. If so they would be asking about the dipole vector associated with the plane that bisects the dipole so I would use E(dipole)=-(1/4pi episolonnot) P/r^3? P is dipole moment
So really I would use -kqs/r^3 where s is distance between charges.
I can't imagine what else the problem is asking.
Another question would be is the q in the above equation the sum of q1 and q2?
Any help would be much appreciated!
Thanks in advanced!!!
